This house was everything we could have hoped for and more. It is in a central location in a beautiful old town, but is peaceful and quiet. Carmela and her son, Nino, could not have been more helpful and were always available to help with any query. There are amazing shops and restaurants nearby. The house itself has been restored beautifully and is full of art and artefacts that have been collected over the years, giving it a unique and endlessly interesting atmosphere. We would highly recommend this place, and the owners, to anyone wishing to spend a holiday in Sicily.

A delightful real Sicilian family and experience. Carmela and her husband Vito and son Nino, took great care of us and we could not have wanted for anything more. Driving around these tiny streets using the Italian Highway Code is a challenge! If you want. Sicilian adventure then no better place..

Apartment is great, really clean and comfortable. But the sea to walk on foot with small kids is too far. The old romantic road is unsuitable for baby carriage. You have to take a taxi. The taxi driver , that host recommended is very reliable and nice person.

Astonishing place to be and stay! First, the location: Acireale is really close to beautiful coasts of Sicily like Isola Bella, Fontane Bianco and towns like Taormina, Syracusa, Ortigia and Noto. It's also really close to Etna if you are interested. Second, the house is such a place that you experience a time travel to 200-300 years ago. I think it's not a house, it's a museum. Have you stayed in museum before? If no, then just taste it! Last but not least, Carmela and her son Nino were amazing hosts. To be honest, Nino is not a host, not a Airbnb house owner, even not a friend, he is like a brother, uncle or whatever you call it! He helped a lot and made our 3 days unforgettable. His attitude is "buonissimo" ;) We have already missed to talk with him. Unutulmaz bir deneyim yaşamak istiyorsanız dogru adrestesiniz. 3 bölümde anlatayım. İlk olarak, evin konumu harika bir yerde. Araba kiraladıysanız bir ayağınız Taormina ve Isola Bella'da, diğer ayağınız Etna'da. Eve 1 saatlik uzaklıkta ise Fontane Bianco, Syracusa, Ortigia ve Noto muhakkak görülmeli! İkinci olarak bu ev sanki ev degil de bir müze. 1750'lerde bir soylunun yaşadığı bu evde konaklamak sizi o zamanlarda yaşamışçasına geriye götürebilir. Son olarak, Carmela ve Nino muhteşem insanlar. Nino'nun sımsıcak ev sahipliği size arkadaştan öte bir abi ya da kardeş gibi hissettiriyor. Tahinli çöreği çok sevdiği için imkanınız varsa götürmeyi düşünebilirsiniz. Tavsiyeleri sayesinde unutulmaz 3 gün geçirdik. Şimdiden sohbetini özlüyoruz:)

Hi, I'm Carmela and with our great pleasure to share the house with all those who love to travel and discover the sounds, colors and new flavors.
I love the morning to get out of my house and walk for a walk to the sea.
If you go to Sicily and want to visit our sea, Siracusa, Taormina and Mount Etna, our facilities, as determined by our guests, are the ideal base.
I love to receive people of different culture, I very gratifying to know that people have been good to me.
We wait,
Carmela
